Recently, the walls painted by long time graffiti legends was painted over! These walls were legally paint and okay'd by the owner of the property. With no signs of negative connotation or offensive imagery, These walls were painted to beautify a plain grey wall and bring some color to many people’s lives! Without any kind of question or warning the pieces of art were vandalize by the city of Albuquerque! With this type of disrespect comes the natural reaction but to go to battle… We are at a point when we have the knowledge and skills to fight back in an “official” way. Need not be intimidated by a fancy suit, nor fancy language. Bottom line the city trespassed and vandalized a legally commissioned work of art! Help support Burque’s quest in these matters of loving service to better our community thru the arts.

Real Kings Do Real Things! Albuquerque has a deeply rooted graffiti tradition! Many of these Kings that are up for hangin canvas pieces at The Trillion Space Art and Print Gallery have greatly inspired me during the mid-90's while visiting from our little border town of Farmington, NM. Freeway smashed walls along eastbound I-40 opened my eyes to another world of color and depth. Decending from the black and white script and block letters of gangsta style graff. I started to bend and add color to my pieces at the skate park where we spent most of our time. HUGETHANKS to the Albuquerque fam for opening my eyes to this beautiful way of life!
